stayed at Gangananda with a group of friends and their families from 05th February 2020 to 10th February 2020 From 05th February 2020 to 10th February 2020

We stayed for 5 nights at Villa Gangananda, a very comfortable villa situated at a beautiful spot on the (large) Madampe lake. We particularly enjoyed taking the villa's stand-up paddle and canoes out in the early mornings and evenings when you can see lots of wildlife (such as the monitor lizard, sea eagle), and the lake is often flat like a mirror. One great thing about the villa's swimming pool is that it is shaded in the afternoon, so it is perfect for watching sunsets while taking a cool drink (you can order from the house's menu and the staff will them fresh). In the evening we had dinner at the villa, made by the resident cook, which was very nice, not to mention very convenient. There are three staff members who live on the property in a separate house, and they were most helpful and discrete. The villa manager Sampath comes around every morning to check if things are OK and offered great help with our excursions. The villa is a short ride away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the south. We also booked a boat tour on the lake (the boat belongs to the villa) one morning, which was great. I had two massages by a very professional masseur who came to the villa, and I can definitely recommend him. All in all Gangananda is a fantastic place to unwind and enjoy beautiful nature while being pampered. We loved it.

Myself my friends had the most perfect time at the villa for Christmas. Sampath and the boys who work there are exceptional. The villa is beautiful and the food was gorgeous. We are so happy we chose this villa to spend our holidays. Thank you to those working there you made it a great Christmas for us

Take a look inside Gangananda

Nestled in a small villa next to the famous Madampe Lake, you’d find the gorgeous Gangananda, a luxury boutique home in Ambalangoda, Sri Lanka, a mere 1 km away from a sandy and quiet beach and approximately 5 minutes from Ambalangoda town centre. This lovely home can accommodate up to6 persons.

Featuring three elegantly designed and furnished bedrooms, stunning infinity pool, lush green garden and panoramic views of the 390-hectare Madampe Lake,this sprawling abode is set to impress as well as create an experience to remember!


Despite being in a small village, there are plenty of attractions surrounding this villa. A small grocery store in front of the villa, is great for essential supplies. The town of Ambalangoda is 5 minutes away by tuk tuk where you can find more conveniences. Take a boat ride along the picturesque Madampe Lake and enjoy the beautiful scenery, fresh air and natural wonders. Feast your eyes at the beautiful palm-fringed beach on the west coast. Visit the famous artisan mask workshop and museum. Not too far away is the longest reclining Buddha statue in South Asia. 30 minutes by tuk tuk you will reach the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, Galle Fort. If time permits, spend a day exploring the famous Sinharaja rainforest, the Udawalawe wildlife park or the tea plantation and factory, whereby arrangements can be made in a jiffy by the villa manager.
